SeaZip Offshore Service has made two additional crew transfer vessels available for the offshore energy industry, in addition to its existing fleet of 24 PAX CTVs.
SeaZip Offshore Service now operates six of its own 24 PAX CTVs and also manages a number of third-party offshore service vessels. In response to demand for more flexibility in passenger capacity, the company’s own CTV capacity was doubled from 12 to 24 PAX at the start of this year. Given the current market dynamics for sustainable offshore wind energy, the ability to transport both small and large groups of employees using the same CTVs is critical.
SeaZip Offshore Service anticipates this dynamic with the purchase of the two CTVs. The ships, renamed m.s. SeaZip 7 and m.s. SeaZip 8, were renamed m.s. SeaZip 7 and m.s. SeaZip 8.
Reputation on the market
Week 22 saw the official handover of the 24 PAX jet propulsion CTVs to SeaZip Offshore Service. JR Shipping, of which SeaZip is a part, was able to attract a small group of investors in a short period of time for the purchase and financing. WEM 1 and WEM 2 are the names of the CTVs that sail for Wind Engine Marine.
SeaZip 7 and SeaZip 8 docked at shipyard partner Next Generation Shipyards in Lauwersoog shortly after the transfer. As of June 10, 2022, both vessels will be operational.
